Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Conklin was last seen in Tucson, Arizona sometime during the summer 1993; his five-year-old son, who lived with his mother, saw him in June or July of that year, when Conklin took him to see a movie and then to the toy store. He has never been heard from again.
In May 1996, authorities got a tip that Conklin's roommate, Jeffrey Davis, had killed him at their residence in the 9000 block of west Picture Rocks Road. He was arrested for the murder in March 1997. Authorities believe he shot Conklin in the back during an argument about money and drugs.
Davis was tried in early 1998. Two witnesses, friends of his, testified that they helped him bury Conklin's body, and a third witness testified that Davis told him about digging up Conklin's remains and re-burying them elsewhere. Despite the lack of physical evidence, the jury deliberated only three hours before convicting him of first-degree murder.
Authorities searched mine shafts in the Silver Bell Mountains for Conklin's body, but found nothing. Foul play is suspected in his case due to the circumstances involved.

September 2021 updates and sources

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 25% of missing children in Europe. By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends. Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
